Found April 18, 2012 on The Other Paper:

The New York Yankees have agreed with the Boston Red Sox to wear different uniforms for the first time ever at the 100th-year anniversary of Fenway Park on Friday.

According to the team, it will be the first time the Yankees have ever worn a different road uniform since they were known as the Highlanders.

Instead of "NEW YORK" emblazoned across the front of the shirt, only the familiar "NY" logo will appear.

It's not like Boston fans won't know what team it is.


The solid gray uniform with matching hat will be the first road uniform that doesn't spell out New York on the front except in the late 20's, when the road uniform replaced the "NEW YORK" with "YANKEES."

The players' names will still not be on the back.

Fans Running Onto The Field: Scary Possibilities

Last night at Yankee Stadium someone ran out onto the field during the Twins-Yankees game. Just as other TV networks do, the YES Network cameras did not show the jerk in action. They instead kept their focus on the Yankees, who were in the field at the time.

Will The Yankees Fans Switch Their Boos From Tebow To The Team?

The New York Yankees are off to a .500 start in the 2012 season. The team is playing .500 both on the road and at home. A few days ago there was a big deal made out of the Yankees fans booing Tim Tebow and Dwayne Wade. I wonder of the fans were switching the focus from the team to the people in attendance. The New York Yankees have been a great team for years. The Yankees have won...

Red-hot Jeter powering Yankees

It was before the Yankees' second game of the season -- just 24 hours into their reconnaissance mission against the Rays (which, by the way, ended in a disastrous sweep).

Jeter never said a word about the enforced rest, but the expression on his face required no forensic...
